Forum: feature_films Subject: Saturday Night Dead

Reading the post below about Beasts with Atomic Brains reminded me of a show that used to be on local TV in Portland, Ore. in the 90s. It was called Saturday Night Dead and featured the campiest horror flicks, hosted by a couple of pale-faced geeks called Ned and Ed. I suppose every city has a show like that, but I wondered if there's anybody else who reads this that's from Portland and remembers that show. I'd be curious also to know what ever happened to Ned and Ed, as I can't find any reference online to them.

Anybody know anything about it?

I used to watch "Saturday Night Dead" as well. The version with Ed and Ned was the second incarnation of the show, as far as I understand. The first version (that I know of) was hosted by a woman and was not nearly as funny or entertaining as the Ed and Ned years. We seem to be among the limited number of people who recall this show, as I can not find mention of it online either. I'm not sure what became of Ed and Ned, other than a quick bio I found on this page http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache:TSQHq7s9AFcJ:www.ghostsofcelilo.com/cast.html+%22saturday+Night+Dead%22+ed+and+ned&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=5&gl=us WHICH states that an actor named Kevin-Michael Moore was either Ed or Ned and is now in the 3rd Floor Sketch Comedy Troupe and The Gunhappy Theatrical Ensemble. I wish I could find some more info concerning the history of "Saturday Night Dead", I greatly enjoyed it. Years later, late 90's/Early 2000's the WB had another local in-house Horror/Sci-Fi host show called "Psychotronic Cinema" which was great, but apparently didn't pull in the viewers or revenue of infomercials, which I believe "Saturday Night Dead" also made way for.

Thanks for finding that, Zombie! I found another page, with his current comedy troupe, that includes a picture. Judging from that, he was Ned, which makes me wonder who Ed was and what ever happened to him. It's strange that a show like that would have so little reference online.

Kevin Michael Moore's picture with the 3rd Floor Comedy troupe is at:

I haven’t heard of Ned and Ed but in the late 70’s there was this guy in Omaha called Dr. Sangunary or something like that. He dressed up in a Dr. outfit and had fake blood smeared on his clothes and had white makeup on his face. He was supposed to be a mad scientist and show some pretty cheesy movies. I was in my early teens and just loved to stay up late and watch his show. Unfortunately these types of shows only last a couple of years.

In the 60's, in florida, we had Shock Theater. The host was Shock Armstrong. He wore a Frankenstein mask. I used to watch the best movies on that show. Now people would call them B movies. But I loved them!

New York in the 1970's it was "Chiller Theater" that had a claymation hand coming out of the blood soaked ground and screached "Chilllllerrrrr!"

This does not answer your question...but since everyone is going down memory lane...

Hi,

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, there's a once a month event in the East Bay called Thrillville. I went last month and they showed "Night of the Lepus." Here's their site if you want more info: http://www.thrillville.net

On April 12th they're showing "Creature from the Black Lagoon" and "It Came From Outer Space."
